Protecting Against the Zika Virus in Wind Lake, Wisconsin & Northern Illinois

What's the trendy new disease being touted by the media? It's the Zika virus ... and it's transmitted by mosquitoes.

 

Uh oh. Summer is en route. Mosquitoes, too.

Should You Be Worried About The Zika Virus in Wind Lake?

Well, no. The mosquitoes that will soon be buzzing Wind Lake, don't harbor the Zika virus. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, not a single person has contracted the virus from a mosquito in the contiguous U.S.

 

Foreign countries are different. Zika virus is a danger if you travel to Mexico, the Caribbean and some South American countries. Tropical mosquitoes in these areas carry the virus. More than 350 "travel-related" Zika cases have been reported in the U.S., where people returned from a foreign country after being infected.

 

The glaring hazard of Zika virus is its connection to serious birth defects, including brain damage. Pregnant women, or those planning to become pregnant, should be especially wary about foreign travel.

 

Otherwise, Zika virus disease isn't fatal. It does have some unwelcome symptoms – fever, rash and joint pain. So, if Zika comes up in conversation this summer, rest easy. Like malaria and dengue fever, it's borne by tropical mosquitoes that don't frequent Wind Lake, southeastern Wisconsin or northern Illinois.

Not Out of the Woods Entirely

Just like mosquitoes love woods, though, we aren't out of the woods regarding mosquito--borne illness. West Nile virus, which appeared in the U.S. about 15 years ago, is a danger. In the Wind Lake area, Illinois had 72 cases reported in 2015. Wisconsin had nine.

 

Wind Lake local mosquitoes can carry West Nile virus. Its danger to people varies. In the vast majority of cases, an infected person has no symptoms.

 

About one in five infected people displays fever and other symptoms: headache, body pain, vomiting and rash. Most recover completely.

 

Yet, a fraction of those infected encounter serious neurologic illness, and can even die. People over sixty are at maximum risk. With Wind Lake summer activities pending – pool parties, family gatherings, the Fourth of July and others – it's worth considering how to defend yourself and others from the West Nile virus.

 

Protecting against mosquitoes, period, minimizes the chance of running into one (or more) harboring West Nile. A mosquito repellent application by The Mosquito Guy keeps mosquitoes away for 30 days. We travel to Wind Lake and throughout southeastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois.

A Small Price for Mosquito Protection and Peace of Mind

Prices start at just $125 per application. It's a small cost to pay for peace of mind regarding West Nile ... and the peace of no mosquitoes buzzing around your ears. Call 262-521-1258, request a mosquito control quote or e-mail margie@themosquitoguy.com, to schedule an application for your Wind Lake yard.

 

Zika virus isn't a concern here. Other mosquito-borne ailments are. The Mosquito Guy will make sure that you, and those you love, are safeguarded from all.
